I love that it syncs with my kindle, but the app is not great overall. The sync with Kindle is not as accurate as I want it. I had to go back to my kindle and flip through like a chapter till I reached where I was. The reason is that my phone has a smaller font making it have less pages, but my kindle has a bigger font with more pages. This confuses the sync feature. I got around this by changing the bottom right display to location in book, which I don't understand what the numbers even are.

In the history of reading books, nobody EVER opened to their bookmark and went back two pages to start reading again. Please stop rewinding pages. I'll pick up where I left off. No need to back up a page or two every single time I close the app. At least let me shut the stupid option off. You make me waste so much time on busy days where I can only read a page or three here and there. Makes sense (maybe?) in an audiobook or podcast. Completely terrible in actual reading. Cut. It. Out.
